Carbon nanotubes built this bizarre ultrablack material

Carbon nanotubes built this bizarre ultrablack material

Carbon nanotubes are a lot like graphene: both are super-hyped materials that haven’t changed the world the way we hoped they would. At least, not yet. But while producing nanotubes, one research team accidentally found something else: one of the blackest materials on the planet. We explore how nanotubes help comprise Vantablack, and how ultrablack…

How we proved this tiny rock came from space

How we proved this tiny rock came from space

Earlier this year, Verge Science went hunting for space dust on a rooftop in Brooklyn. The hunt turned up some promising samples, but looking at them under a microscope led to inconclusive results — even from the world’s foremost micrometeorite hunter. To get to the bottom of things, we took a trip to Johnson Space…

Why NASA hasn’t gone back to the moon

Why NASA hasn’t gone back to the moon

NASA has big plans to return to the Moon by 2024, and it’s banking on the historic Space Launch System (SLS) to get them there. But after years of delays and cost overruns, skeptics are questioning whether SLS should remain the biggest priority for NASA. As the 50th anniversary of the Moon landing approaches, we…

Is the “insect apocalypse” real?

Is the “insect apocalypse” real?

This week, we hit the road in rural Texas for our weirdest experiment yet. We’re collecting all the bugs that splat on our car’s windshield. It’s a silly project that hints at a very serious issue: the decline of insect populations around the world. It’s mysterious and disturbing…but might be different from what you’ve been…

The real reasons the US refuses to go metric

The real reasons the US refuses to go metric

In 1975, the US had their shot at going metric… but we blew it. Over 40 years later, we’re still entangled in mass confusion. In this video, we take a look at why our old system of measures has held out for so long, why Americans are so hesitant to make the switch, and most…

NASA needs your help to improve its space laser

NASA needs your help to improve its space laser

NASA recently launched a new satellite with an ambitious goal: it will measure the height of every forest on the planet. It’s part of an effort to figure out how much carbon is locked up in trees across the Earth. But, NASA’s not totally sure how accurate their space-laser measurement system really is. So, we…
